O, Tannenbaum


Published 1905


The Cylinder Archive [www.cylinder.de] release for December 2010:

O, Tannebaum (O, Christmas Tree): One of the top three Christmas songs known in Germany. This cylinder was recorded in August 1905 in Berlin, Germany and is announced by Carl Nebe with his very distinctive wrong pronunciation of Edison's name.

From the collection of the German Museum of Technology, Berlin.

Excerpt from Wikipedia:

"O Tannenbaum", or, in its English version, "O Christmas Tree", is a Christmas carol of German origin.

A Tannenbaum is a fir tree (German die Tanne) or Christmas tree (der Weihnachtsbaum). Its evergreen qualities have long inspired musicians to write several "Tannenbaum" songs in German.

The best known version was written in 1824 by the Leipzig organist, teacher and composer Ernst Anschütz. The melody is an old folk tune. The first known "Tannenbaum" song lyrics date back to 1550.

-from Wikipedia


"Maryland, My Maryland" is a contrafactum which uses the very same melody and was also released on period cylinder records.
